Pre-Christmas parties with my co-workers and dinner in the Oskarin kellari. The staff was friendly and food was good. Not the best restaurant in Oulu, but generally very good.

I hadnt had the courtesy of having a Finnish buffet the Finnish way-this was my first! And no,i wasnt disappointed!! This Ravintola is located just around the corner from the Sokos mall. Its actually spacious than what one would initially think,because it has two sides....Its clean,i saw only women running the show(and they are hip 😁)! I was impressed!! You are welcomed by the door and pay before you eat. Starters are impressive,the mains are few items but enough...deserts-well,a few choices would be great(one item,then tea/coffee) but then,i guess its alright,afterall,by the time you get to dessert,tummy is full! The food is tasty!! The beef...potatoes au gratin... I loved it. Oh,and they serve home made beer on the buffet too 🤭🤭 Tables are neat and clean-well,sadly,i hadnt noticed the cutlery in the ceramic on the table,so on my way from the starters, i picked from the side station🤣😂🤣😂🤣🤣 Yep,dim moments!! Liked the infused water too!! Restaurant was full when we were there...some go,others come in... Yessss,go taste these women's food....and yeah,they DO smile at you,even when you are a stranger!!!!👌More

This restaurant has long time ago been one of the best in town. Not any more. I had a dinner with friends having smoked reindeer soup as a starter and beef as the main course. I guess the restaurant wants to be a fine dining...place...at least the amount of soup was ridicuosly small. Taste was great but having a couple of spoons...not enough. The beef was dry and tasted like it was boiled... The service was very polite and that was the only good thing. I guess I will not come back...More

A place serving very basic Finnish food but food that is well done. The list is foods is rather short but the stuff is priced mid-range and tastes normally very good.

Salad selection in this restaurant is out of this world. Specially love the cold fish / boiled eggs options in salad. For a affordable lunch price, the wide selection of salads, and warm dishes dazzles me. Dessert and coffee are included in the price. Been...there for lunch many times, and never have been disappointed. Restaurant is quite dark and lacks a bit of lighting, specially if you visit there on winter (easily overshadowed by good food).More

This is a lovely restaurant with excellent food. Every time I visit Oulu, it's top of my priority. The service is above average and it's very easy to have a nice relaxing evening here. The only problem is that it is hard to find. Even...though I have been here a couple of times, I still end up having to ask for directions, a couple more signs would help. But don't let that put you off, the food is well worth it.More
